Melissa (KR), 1981, Italy
Lives and works in Mantova.
He proposes spaces of actions and reflections that could create links between the individual, the community and its environment, comparing the ultra capitalist concept of exploitation and consumerism with an ethical concept, which bases its process on “World Care.”
Pieces is an installation composed by a series of quotes from Heraclitus “Fragments”, engraved on spruce beams of different size.
The artwork conceptually recalls the philosophical hermetic figure of Heraclitus, the fragments of his thought are placed in the surrounding nature, located along the Naviglio Martesana in the territories that host Ecoismi.
The viewer finds himself looking for or accidentally meeting the aphorisms of the famous Greek thinker that reflect on the human condition, on the relationship with nature and on a knowledge that must be sought and lived.
Through this installation the artist wants to stimulate research and participatory activities, reflection and questioning, searching for an evolving dialogue with the other and a total integration with the environment that hosts it, with the principal aim to become a part of it.
